My self-summary
I'm working as a high school teacher and speech coach north of Milwaukee, the city where I grew up and still spend plenty of my free time. I'm a huge pop culture fan with a penchant for all thing trivial. I'm hooked on good literature and learning new things, and most overly kitschy things make me giddy.
What I’m doing with my life
Shaping young minds and occasionally leading them slightly astray in delightfully subversive ways. Making sure I never fully grow up. Trying to learn something new from time to time.
I've also started getting into running a few summers back to try and keep in shape, and I've already managed to get two full marathons under my belt.
I’m really good at
• making ice cream
• playing Scrabble
• making a perfect mix tape for just about any occasion
• learning to do new and interesting things
• snark and sarcasm
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a) lately I've been getting into some sprawling, epic graphic novels along the lines of Y: the Last Man, and Powers, but I've still got plenty of more traditional literature I love - Tom Robbins, John Irving, Chris Bachelder, Terry Pratchett, and Chuck Klosterman are amongst the writers I particularly enjoy

b) Royal Tenenbaums, The Fall, Barcelona, Magnolia, Almost Famous, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Reservoir Dogs, City of Lost Children, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Waiting for Guffman, Fight Club, Memento, and plenty more

c) Futurama, Community, Game of Thrones, Man vs. Food, Breaking Bad, Dexter, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Lost (yes, even the last season), and what feels like three or four intricate and quirky serialized shows each season that inevitably end up cancelled before they develop enough of an audience to keep them going

d) Jellyfish, Wilco, Soul Coughing, Moxy Früvous, The Decemberists, Steely Dan, The Beatles, The Mountain Goats, Eels, Ben Folds, Regina Spektor, Elvis Costello, Spoon, They Might Be Giants, Brendan Benson, The Police, XTC, (to name a few), and just about any interesting cover song along with almost all of what gets played on Radio Milwaukee. I've also had a lot of fun searching for new and used vinyl albums now that I've got a proper turntable.

e) I've developed a penchant for making foods from scratch that most people find easier to just buy pre-made. Homemade ice cream homemade pizza are two frequent favorites.
Six things I could never do without
• my laptop
• running shoes
• an unwieldy music collection
• a comfy bed
• Chuck Taylors
• a healthy appreciation for the absurdity of life
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Even though I realize my answers here are fairly short, I do a good deal of writing, so I think a bunch about what is worth writing and how I can express it in an interesting and entertaining way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Catching some offbeat movie, experimenting with some new recipe, or hanging out with friends playing games and being just generally mischievous.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a favorite font. Go ahead and ask about it.
You should message me if
you've got an offbeat view of the world and a snarky sense of humor
The two of us
